    The receptionist at the surgery has just rung me to say that I have high levels of potassium in my blood, and low sodium? I have a bad hiatus hernia that causes me a really sore throat and my vocal chords are really inflamed! I am on Ranitide twice a day and omeprazole morning and evening and also peptic liquid after meals!
    I have also been prescribed lisinopril, bisoprol, amyloid pine and aspirin for blood pressure and slight arteosclerosis.
    Would any of these drugs have a bearing on my recent blood tests results please? Be interested in people's thoughts? Thank you. Liz

    I am supposed to be getting my 4th Prolia shot this week but my blood tests came back with high potassium levels. I have had high potassium levels even before getting the Prolia shot. My bone density HAS improved but it is worth it if I keep getting high potassium levels ?

    I have always suffered from headaches. I had colitis so I was limited to taking Tylenol. the last year or so my headaches have gotten worse so I increased the Tylenol. my potassium readings are going up. 2 different doctors dispute the fact that Tylenol can raise your potassium. I am at my wit's end as to how to treat my headaches.
